Okay, here's the damage I (un)did to this source. I patched in the missing space from Doug Oade's excellent recording. In order to match the levels with Drums at the beginning and Wheel at the end, I had to put up with a certain amount of clipping on the drums during the space set - just where the snares are hit really hard. It's worth it, though, first to make the transitions smoother, second to illustrate how an AUD can shine. Doug Oade was obviously not using any limiter, which Amy probably was, at least for her recording - you can instantly tell the difference in clarity. A local soundman friend of mine once told me, "I don't mix for tapes, I mix for the room". Soundboard snobs take heed!
I also eliminated a short gap at the end of The Wheel, restoring the seamless transition into Stella Blue. The gap was possibly a TAO artifact.
The US Blues encore from the original fileset is probably also from the Oade AUD.

A Great Show
I saw most of the east coast shows from around '82 ~ '90. I thought the Providence shows always rocked. This copy of the show sounds better than the other ones, less 'muddy'.
Uh, I guess this is as good a place as any to say 'Thank You' to Jerry and all the Boys. Somehow, the love got through my dead and de-sensitized heart and filled it with gratitude.. even today I can still see Love and Beauty in this world... Anyway, go ahead and listen...
